“The BMW Group has set itself ten strategic sustainability goals running through to 2020. Key goals include reducing the consumption of water, energy, waste solvents per vehicle by 45%, becoming a leader in using renewable energy for production and value creation, and taking a holistic approach to premium electro-mobility,” said Mr. Paul de Courtois, Managing Director of BMW Group Asia. “Our goals are perfectly in line with what the SIEW aims to achieve; therefore, it is befitting that BMW be chosen as the official car for SIEW 2017.”


“This appointment marks a special occasion for Performance Motors Ltd and BMW Asia as we have been given the great opportunity to showcase, for the first time, our latest Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle. We are committed to providing all attending VIPs, speakers and foreign dignitaries with pleasant and secure journeys during their stay.” said Mr Horst Herdtle, Managing Director of Performance Motors Limited.


In view of today’s environmental challenges, the BMW Group has lowered energy and water consumption, waste and wastewater volumes, as well as solvent and CO2 emissions per vehicle produced by an average of 50% since 2006. In addition, the newly enhanced versions of the diesel units in the EfficientDynamics engine family burn up to 5% less fuel on average, emitting up to 5% less CO2.

It may not be its only strength – far from it – but outstanding efficiency is undoubtedly a BMW 5 Series speciality. Indeed, the model series’ achievements in this area have played a major role in securing its global best-selling status at the premium end of the executive class. Now, the all-new BMW 5 Series have set about extending their lead in the efficiency stakes once again. The introduction of a new generation of four-cylinder diesel engines improves further on what was already an exceptional balance between performance and fuel economy.
